I've been turning the idea over in my head of visualizing the events of my life into some weird geographic location. I thought it would be a good creative exercise, and also help me reflect a little. So last month, I finally sat myself down and illustrated this Tolkien-inspired map of my life. Now that I've got the juices flowing I can't stop thinking of different ways to chart and represent the events in my life, like the imaginative maps in Katherine Harmon's "You Are Here". Maybe I'll make this into a semi-annual thing.
